beijing 2016

Hi Everyone,

A huge thanks to everyone who made it up to the Beijing for The All China Games; what a weekend! I’m sure many livers are still in recovery. And although Seoul won the men’s and Beijing the women’s, our teams put up a huge fight and everyone played excellently. A special mention to MC who won an All Star and rightly so!

It’s a sad month also. We are losing four players who make up a huge part of our club; MC, Tom, Ling and Fergus. We’re sad to see them go but we wish them all the best in the future!

North Asian Games
No rest for the wicked! Next weekend sees some of the team heading to Busan for the NAGs on July 9th. Best of luck to all attending and the rest of us are sad we can’t make it! If you are interested, contact either Peter or Adrian.

Training is done for the summer but will restart in August. In the meantime, there is a Ladies Soccer League happening during our slot at Luwan on Tuesday evenings and the men are more than welcome to join the AFL lads. Keep the fitness up for the AGGs😉

Hopefully see you all on Tuesday and if not, maybe the Blarney!
